Custom Shirt Spotlight: Charleston Beer Fest

You know a festival is going to be a good time when an event’s slogan is “Drink Beer. Do Good.” But there's more to the Charleston Beer Fest than just the delicious brew. From herbal to spicy, and sharp to elegant, the ale is always a draw, but the best thing about this annual event is that proceeds from tickets, custom shirts, craft vendors, and food trucks goes to support Palmetto Community Care, an organization that helps those living with HIV/Aids in the Charleston, SC, community. 

Interview with Richard Reams of the Charleston Beer Fest:


Vapor Apparel Creates Custom Shirts for Event Goers and Volunteers

Vapor Apparel was proud to work with the Charleston Beer Fest on their event merch. With more than 4,500 tickets sold each year, custom event shirts are always big sellers. So, we took their “Hoptopus” event logo and hand-printed the design on a Solar Long Sleeve in Pearl Grey using our in-house sublimation process.  

The result? A custom shirt that people bought and wore at the event itself, not only because it was a really cool shirt, but also because it was hot and sunny, and our Solar shirts are built for just that. But quality of the shirt – and the undeniably cool design – makes these shirts easy to rep year-round for all your favorite outdoor activities – from hiking to fishing and even beer festivals. 

“I could not recommend Vapor Apparel enough as a partner! This was our first year partnering with them to produce a co-branded Charleston Beerfest Solar Long Sleeve Shirt. The creative process was seamless, and the communication was clear throughout. Most importantly, the end product was exceptional and a huge hit at the festival! Not only did Vapor produce a shirt for the public, but they also created a shirt for the festival staff team. They delivered the perfect, easily identifiable shirt for our ‘Brew Crew.’ If you are looking for a quality product with an excellent team, you've found it with Vapor Apparel,” said Richard Reams, Palmetto Community Care’s Director of Development & Marketing. 

Beer Fest and Vapor Apparel Staff at the Charleston Beer Fest"We were so excited to help The Beer Fest with a custom UPF 50+ sun shirt,” said Vapor’s Senior Brand Developer Gustavo Serrano. “The graphic was so cool, and we knew it would be a HIT at the festival this year!” 

As a sponsor of the event, Vapor also had a vendor booth where Gustavo and crew sold Beerfest Shirts along with some of our Vapor Apparel collections.  

“I got to work on many in-person events this year and The Beer Fest was one of my favorites,” Gustavo said. “Great beer, people, and the vibes were hop-ing! I am looking forward to the next Beer Fest in October 2024."
